    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Radio shock jock Howard Stern, who is moving to satellite radio to avoid broadcast decency rules, traded verbal jabs on air with Federal Communications Commission (news - web sites) Chairman Michael Powell on Tuesday, charging him with nepotism and undermining free speech. "It is apparent to most of us in broadcasting that your father got you your job," said Stern, who called in while Powell was being interviewed on San Francisco's KGO-AM 810. Powell shot back that his father, Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites), had nothing to do with his appointment. The FCC...

    Anybody listening to Howard Stern now? If you live on the Left Coast, PLEASE tape the show starting a little after 10 AM to get an accurate transcript to post here. Anyway, Howard is NOW blasting Moonves BIGTIME. He is goofing on Moonves and his girlfriend, Julie Chen by imitating Moonves saying, "Julie, come over here and service me NOW!" Howard is also playing clips of Moonves as he is goofing on him. One of the things Moonves says on the clip is how proud he is of the Hallmark production of their TV movies (thus giving lie to Hallmark's...

    I was sitting here watching CNN as they are covering the California wildfires. They were doing an interview with an actor about his role in a movie about a fraudulent reporter for the magazine "The New Republic". CNN cuts off the middle of this interview and breaks to a phone call with the "mayor of San Diego" who reportedly has news about three arrests in connection with the fires. They put this guy on the radio and he states that, "three arrests were made in connection with the fires. He cannot release the names of the people but can confirm...

(AP) — A man pretending to be infamous Cubs fan Steve Bartman tricked ESPN into putting him on the air for a live phone interview Thursday. The prank, on the 6 p.m. edition of "SportsCenter," was discovered shortly into the interview when the man referred to radio shock jock Howard Stern. The interview was stopped, and anchor Dan Patrick said, "We've been had. That was not Steve Bartman." "We made a mistake," ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said.

    Employing his Hollywood celebrity, Arnold Schwarzenegger took his campaign to the talk shows of two of his famous friends Wednesday as he engaged Howard Stern and Larry King in discussions of his personality, entertainment and politics. His appearances on Stern's morning radio show and King's evening TV show followed a session Monday on Oprah Winfrey's daytime TV program. In completing that three-bagger on the American talk circuit, Schwarzenegger — a personal friend of all three hosts who has been a frequent guest on all three shows — returned to the familiar territory of celebrity talk, where he has long promoted...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Even though shock jock Howard Stern's radio and television show features scantily clad women and raunchy chatter, regulators on Tuesday ruled it a news program, exempting it from equal time rules on political coverage. The staff decision by the Federal Communications Commission (news - web sites) opens the way for the show to book two of the sexier candidates for California governor: Hollywood he-man Arnold Schwarzenegger (news) and porn-star Mary Carey. A media watchdog group immediately denounced the FCC (news - web sites) ruling, calling it a reversal of decades of U.S. media regulation designed to...

    A bagman for a bigshot mobster is conned out of his money by con men. In revenge, the bigshot mobster has one of the con men killed. Later the mobster works with the one of the con men in a scheme to illicitly earn some big bucks but the con men pull a switcheroo on the mobster. One element of the switcheroo involves a federal agent apparently trying to bust the leading con man, thereby fouling the scheme of conning the mobster. However, it turns out that the federal agent is really working for the con men. At the...

    Sex-obsessed shock jock Howard Stern, who for years has been bragging about his two-decade marriage, has split from his wife Alison. "This is an amicable separation," Dan Klores, a spokesman for the couple, said last night. "Following mediation, both Alison and Howard, who care for each other very much, have come to an agreement and settled all their concerns." It's believed the long-haired loudmouth's workaholic ways - a daily radio show and weekly TV show, plus book and movie deals - doomed the 21-year union. Howard, 45, had turned his seemingly rock-solid marriage to Alison, 44, into a mini-cottage ...

    TUPELO, MS - The American Family Association (AFA) today condemns what it calls the most inhumane statement ever made by shock-jock Howard Stern following America's national tragedy. According to Florida attorney Jack Thompson, four days after the terrorist attacks in New York City, Stern said on his Friday morning broadcast, "New York prostitutes ought to do what everyone else is doing. They ought to donate their services and go down there and give oral sex to the firemen while they're digging for bodies." Moments before that, one of Stern's sidekicks stated that he has been calling women who are impressed ...

    Howard Stern, the wildly popular, drive-time radio host for New York's K-Rock, dressed down Sean Penn on today's broadcast for Penn's comments of earlier this week, when the actor compared Stern and Bill O'Reilly to Osama bin Laden and accused George W. Bush of not being thought-provoking or spirit-challenging. Stern defended the President: "I ask you, what was the last thought-provoking, spirit-challenging movie Sean Penn made ... Fast Times at Ridgemont High? He's a failed actor." He said that it is not George W. Bush's job to provoke people to thought [the President's job, as we all know, is to ...

    The man who once claimed to be the “King of All Media” had to endure the humiliation of having his Saturday night syndicated television show dumped by CBS -- because too few people were watching. Howard Stern raised plenty of eyebrows when CBS Eyemark Entertainment gave the radio shock jock a national late-night platform for his vulgar and perverse brand of humor in the fall of 1998. Commenting early on, Stern promised that his show would have “a lot of nudity and lesbians,” “strippers” and “a lot of drunken dwarves.” His show lived up to his prediction. After months of ...

Correct me if I am wrong, but I would imagine that most of the smut-happy morons who listen to this guy probably wouldn’t vote for Bush anyway, (if they even bother to vote). These are the type of people who buy into all that democratic mantra that republicans are for the rich, they are prolife when the baby is unborn, but as soon as the baby...

    Only a quarter of the radio stations contacted by the New York Post say they're willing to go to the mat to continue broadcasting Howard Stern's radio show. Seventeen stations, representing just under half of Stern's 35 national affiliates, were surveyed by the Post's John Mainelli late last week, after steep FCC fines prompted Stern's syndicator, Clear Channel, to drop him from the roster of six of their outlets. "Only four station managers expressed unabashed support [for Stern]," reports Mainelli. "Another is on the fence, and 12 more avoided all comment." He calls the result of his thumbnail survey a...

    Is "shock jock" Howard Stern's voice powerful enough to affect the upcoming presidential election to the extent of sending President Bush packing? That's what the Boston Globe wants to know, explaining that the liberal talk show host the newspaper describes as a "stripper aficionado, champion of misfits everywhere, all-purpose radio provocateur," has turned his raunchy show into a Bush bashing marathon. Writes the Globe's Matthew Gilbert, Stern has been devoting hours of his broadcast every weekday "to impassioned criticism of President Bush and support of Senator John Kerry." Stern, he writes has been "Railing tirelessly against the president, attacking Bush's...

    Howard Stern was partially silenced today - by himself. The King of All Media signed on this morning with a montage of radio station promos and soundbites from Talk shows and government officials speaking about the raging debate over indecency. The dramatic audio collage was laced with snippets fom protest songs, like Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son," Bob Marley & The Wailers' "Get Up, Stand Up," Thunderclap Newman's "Something In The Air" and Stern's own remix of KoRn's "Y'All Want A Single." It wasn't until roughly 7:15am EST that Stern spoke his first new words of the day, though they...

    The Howard Stern saga continues. Although Infinity is saying they will stand by their man, Stern is threatening to quit anyway if President Bush signs new indecency legislation into law. On this morning's show, Congressman Gary Ackerman called in to discuss the bill and assure Stern that he would not sign it. Ackerman said the vote on the bill is happening today, and that he feels it will easily pass through the right wing-controlled House but that the Senate may veto it. (The bill passed in the House this afternoon, see separate story.) Stern replied by saying that if Bush...
